Mexican Zucchini Boats

180 grams Zucchini (2 green)
1/2 cup Rotel (1 green)
4 oz shredded chicken breast (2/3 leaner)
1 1/3 oz low fat shredded cheese (1/3 lean)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cut zucchini in half length wise. With a spoon, scoop on the inside seeds to create the Zucchini Boat. Weigh the zucchini so you have 180 grams. I cut my zucchini into 3 boats to fit my pan.  Fill each boat with shredded chicken, evenly distributing the chicken among the boats. Top the chicken with 1/2 cup of Rotel. Bake for 30 minutes. Add shredded cheese and bake for another 10 minutes.

This entire recipe counts as 1 lean & 3 greens.

Rotel are canned tomatoes, that typically are seasoned with spices that are complementary to Mexican/Spanish cooking.

Quick question: do you cook the chicken before shredding it and putting it on the boats? Or does the chicken go on the boats and into the oven raw?

Thanks for the great recipes!

Hi Shelby,

I cook the chicken first. I actually used left overs for these :)
